    "Gotham, take control… take control of your city. Behold, the instrument of your liberation! Identify yourself to the world!"

    On an overall scale The Dark Knight Rises cannot keep up with the perfection of the first two films of the trilogy. The narrative is a bit messy and there are some plot holes to be noticed. Also, the characters lack some depth, probably because Nolan is trying to fit in as much as possible in the grand finale. That doesn't…

    Okay, so I have a story about this film.

    So one of my friends invited me to go see a movie with her and her boyfriend, and it happened to be this movie. At the time, she was seeing someone who had recently liked me A LOT and I did not reciprocate him at all. In fact, I was a little creeped out by him. I was hesitant about going to the movie with them, because who wants to be…

    Upon a rewatching of L'Ascension du Chevalier Noir, the 2012 art film about an agent named CIA (Aidan Gillen) who tries to track down mercenary masked man Bane (Tom Hardy), I remembered that Batman was also in this movie.

    This was arguably the best directed and produced Batman film, with some fantastic set locations and cinematography. Bale as Batman actually seems to be gargling marbles a bit less, but still is horrendous. I think Joseph Gordon-Levitt had some great chops during this movie, and did a hell of a performance. Bane was ultra-cool, but I feel like the casting of Hardy was the wrong choice; his voice doesn't fit the role. But Bane is definitely one of the most…

    With the benefit of having so many reviews in front of me by others, it's starting to feel like the disdain is getting out of control.

    Almost every movie will struggle when the previous film is something equivalent to the level that The Dark Knight got to. This is not a perfect movie, nor even close to that, but it does end the trilogy nicely.

    I think we all wanted better, but this isn't worthy of the 0-3 stars it is getting

    Nearly Impossible to live up to the Dark Knight, but an admirable ending to an amazing trilogy.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Greatly directed action (though the return of Batman does feel a lot like the tumbler chase in Batman Begins) but poorly written story. So many plot holes. The biggest one for me being the whole bankruptcy thing. Is the stock market not closely monitored and regulated enough to see the problem with "Bruce Wayne" gambling all of his money on the day there was a robbery in the stock exchange? Also, they take away his car? We're talking about Bruce…

    After the first two masterful entries, this film faulters a bit. But, it is still a great film, and a fitting close to the series. There is nothing actually crap about this film, it is just that it doesn't completely engage the real sense of dread that the second film managed so well. The city is supposed to be held hostage, but I felt that scenario wasn't entirely convincing or palpable. 12 million people held hostage, but, that scale wasn't…

    Some things are good. Some are great. Some aren't very groovy at all. But this is Batman so who cares.
